Canadian Medical Association

Shediac, NB; Dalhousie University, 1973; family medicine; life member, New Brunswick Medical Society. Died Feb. 25, 2021, aged 73. Survived by his wife Diane, 2 daughters and 5 grandchildren. “After medical school, Kim embarked upon a 40-year professional career that once comprised one of the largest family medicine practices in Moncton, NB. Kim prided himself on being ‘a foot soldier’ in family practice, and said there was not a day he was not happy to go to work. Kim enjoyed tremendously working with his partners at the clinic, who were not only professional colleagues but also close personal friends. The group constructed their new building on Mountain Road in the early 1980s, a project that Kim was passionate about. As the clinic welcomed new physicians over the years, Kim was an excellent mentor and was always available to assist or support his colleagues. Always early to make rounds, he thoroughly enjoyed his morning visits to the doctors’ lounge to pick up mail and hear the latest tales from Dr. Noonan! While the work of a family physician is multifaceted and varied, there was never any question about what Kim enjoyed the most, and that was welcoming new babies into the world — over 2300 of them! In the last few years he was delivering babies for mothers he had also delivered.”
